My method is a bit simpler, and may not work for everyone (I haven't ripped any paper as of right now).

1. Turn the paper sideways so that the opening (where you insert and remove the disc) is facing the floor.

2. Put your free hand underneath the opening.

3. Gently squeeze, and the CD will drop into your free hand.

Use the same technique to put the CD back in its hole.

This doesn't appear to scratch the disc (but don't take my word on it!).

I may just get a big CD wallet and store them in that.

I tried that with the discs whose pockets aren't on the end, and it didn't work. That's when I started thinking about a tool.

The point of using a paper clip with the rubbery coating is that no metal ever contacts either discs or sleeves. It really does work fine, but I suggest people practice first with less valuable discs so they too can be persuaded of that.

That's my method also! Squeeze and shake a little. I'd never put ANY metal object anywhere near the disc.
